About My Clients
My clients are those that seek meaning in life and are ready to ask the deeper questions. We might be a good fit if you are searching for deeper connection with yourself and others, and desire to observe and release patterns, limiting beliefs, and stories that no longer serve you. I work with those experiencing, processing, and integrating: life transitions, grief/loss, anxiety/depression, trauma, stress, self-worth, attachment & relationship issues, identity, & spirituality/spiritual awakening.
My Background and Approach
I bring an integrative, intuitive, whole-person approach to therapy. I provide person-centered, strength-based, trauma focused, individualized treatment tailored to your unique needs. I incorporate narrative therapy, intersectional feminist perspective, inner child work, Jungian philosophy & Dreamwork, and mindfulness and embodiment practices to help regulate your nervous system and reconnect you to your body, the present moment, and your intuition. I hold a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from Bastyr University, and a Bachelor’s degree from University of Alaska Southeast. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate in Washington State (MA, LMHCA; WA credential #MC61084553). In addition, I hold certifications as a RYT-200 Hour Yoga Teacher and as a First and Second Degree Usui/Holy Fire III Reiki practitioner.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I hold a safe space of acceptance, compassion, and connection for you to process, heal, integrate, explore, and transform. In our work together I recognize you as the expert on your life. I will be a mirror and guide, and will highlight patterns, provide tools, and offer perspective while empowering you to develop trust and confidence in yourself. Trauma impacts the way we experience the world, and is stored in the body and nervous system. To retrain and regulate your nervous system, I integrate mindfulness/meditation, breathwork, and embodiment practices that help to establish safety within your body and the present moment. We will observe how past influences present, and will work to observe and release limiting beliefs and stories that are no longer serving you. We will work to dismantle internalized oppression, systems, and heal generational trauma and inner child wounds.
